Looks like I'm gonna be back in a pair of IHs finally. Just picked up a pair of these and should have in a few days. Will most likely be reserved for winter but couldn't resist when I saw the measurements. :D

Well... Just kidding apparently. 2nd pair of jeans in a row I've tried to order off the SE online site that ended up being out of stock despite what site inventory indicated. Really bummed on this one.

That really sucks mate. Somewhat defeats the point of showing stock online, and more of a pain for them to manage  also.

Have you considered the 555-01's?  The cut is somewhat similar.  At least in my size (36) I feel the 555's are slightly tighter in the hips and have a longer rise when compare to my 301's (original ones without the visible selvedge)

Forgive me if this has been talked about already, but,

This is a selvedge denim, is there a reason for the outer seam to be unfinished and over-locked? Pretty curious.

Thanks

The 301S does not have selvedge, it was designed that way, partly because when it was originally conceived by Tom and Haraki it was destined to be sold to the Haraki's domestic customers (who on the whole are bikers and don't give a jot about selvedge, preferring cut and construction to be their driver), Haraki decided not to release it in Japan and Kiya decided to take the jean. . . .
The 301S was originally conceived as a non selvedge jean.  The same silhouette could be achieved to show the selvedge line, but it would be a radical redesign.  I originally thought it was due to the taper, but learnt otherswise when I was designing the Devils's Fit with Tom and Haraki.... 

Hope this helps a little . . .

So Kiya clearly wanted it to be redesigned, are they a better jean because of it? I just got them yesterday at self edge LA, and my pair is made without the finished edge.

You will have to ask Kiya.  They're his jeans, his decisions......My view.  Not particularly unless selvedge side seam is important to you, it isn't to Haraki.  G

Finally picked up a pair and have some IH back in the rotation. Really great fit. If I have the chance and the lighting is decent I'll get some pics up later today. Admittedly it is quite strange going from the unssnforized denim of the sexi23 to the soft 21oz IH denim. Forgot how much these feel like wearing sweat pants.
